Class Trip to Dunstan's Hall

Helena TROLLEY (helena) on: Beech class blog

We had a fantastic class trip to Dunstan's Hall today. The children were very enthusiastic and threw themselves into all the activities, learning how to thresh the wheat and separate the grains of wheat from the chaff before grinding the grains to make flour and finally making some bread. After a busy morning we stopped for a well-earned break and the children had a look around the farm before heading back to the hall for some battle training and an Anglo-Saxon tale. Pictures to follow!


Roman Day!

Last Thursday, the children dressed up and took part in Roman Day. The children looked fantastic in their costumes and had lots of fun making shields and catapults and baking apple and cinnamon buns.

Thank you to all the parents, grandparents, brothers and sisters who joined us for Roman Day last week. It was lovely to see so many of you. We hope you enjoyed the day as much as we did.


Happy New Year!

We've had a great start to the term. The children seem refreshed after their break and are very enthusiastic about our new topic, the Romans. They have lots of questions and are keen to find out more.

We are very much looking forward to our Roman Day on Thursday 2nd February. Children are allowed to dress up as Romans for the day and will spend the day completing different Roman activities, such as baking, and making Roman items, such as catapults and shields. Pictures to follow!
